Am I Blue?

Yes, I’m blue.

No, I am not talking about the George Strait song (although it is a really good song).

I’m talking about being blue to kick off Autism Awareness Month, of course.  I’ve got my nice blue shirt on, ready to go.  Amber wore blue to work today, too.  Our house will have shades of blue starting tonight as well, thanks to our blue porch light and the blue flood lights I installed by our garage this weekend.  I guess you could say we are kicking the month off in a big way.

Speaking of being blue, if you are in the Tallahassee-area tomorrow (April 2), the Old Capitol Building will be going blue at 6:30.  We will be joining other advocates and caregivers around 6 in what we hope is becoming an annual tradition.

If you are not in the area, check out the Light It Up Blue website for buildings in your area that are going blue, or stop by a store and pick up a blue light for your house (I got the floodlights at Wal-Mart, and used our blue porch light we bought last year at Home Depot).

I am not holding my breath that the White House will participate, but instead of dwelling on that, I will focus on the baby steps that are being taken at the state level.

If you are in the area tomorrow, I hope to see you tomorrow evening!
